Photography and New Media

Good News! As you might have read somewhere in the press, I’ve been selected as a guest curator for the next three editions of FotoGrafia Festival Internazionale di Roma regarding the section “photography and new media”. The other two curators are Paul Wombell (photography and contemporary art) and Marc Prust (photography and publishing). FotoGrafia, international festival in Rome, is promoted by Comune di Roma and MACRO, produced by Zoneattive, director Marco Delogu.

I’m totally open to suggestions, so if you are aware of any interesting work involving the relationship between photography and new media, please drop me a line here:
